Amazing Blu-Ray transfer
on 10 October 2013
Sometimes when these older films (and sometimes not so old) are transferred to Blu-Ray, the work is appalling. Such is not the case with this one.
"The Addams Family" is one of my all-time favourite films and I never really understood all the bashing it got that led to the sparse production of DVDs of it. The film is solid, there are plenty of references to the original cartoons...it's the ultimate Addams Family film.
I have been waiting for this film to be released on Blu-Ray and the result could not be better. There's no grain, the colours are crisp and vibrant, everything is spot on.
The only "problem" I have with this is that there's nothing else apart from the 2 theatrical trailers. No cool extras nor anything alike. HOWEVER there's one thing to praise in the "theatrical trailers". Unlike other editions of old films, the image of the theatrical trailers was also restored. The sound wasn't on the 1st trailer but the picture was in both, which is remarkable.
Get this! And I hope they don't take long before releasing "The Addams Family Values" on Blu-Ray.
Also, for those in the USA or other countries: this release, unlike what Amazon.co.uk says, IS region FREE.
